      Jamaica Mar 12, 2015 at 6:17 AM

      Hello,
      My boyfriend and I are flying into Montego Bay and will be in Jamaica for 5 days, but we'd like to get away from the resort areas and cruise ship ports. Looking for a laid back area away (accessible by public transportation) from typical tourist spots. I'd love to do some hiking, along with having some chill beach time.
      Can anyone offer suggestions?

      Thanks!

    • Jewel Paradise Cove

      Jamaica Feb 21, 2015 at 6:24 AM

      Hello all we are new here! This is the wife. I have a number of questions.

      Has anyone been to Jewel Paradise Cove Resort? We are going to be there from May 24 to 30th. Would like to know what to expect at the resort.

      How bad is the airport and customs? What should we expect?

      What are some good things to do in jamaica? My hubby wants to do appleton rum tour, zipline, bobsled, parasailing, snorkeling, and on and on. What would you guys recommend?

      What should i be packing? My hubby's friend told him to keep an eye on the locals as they like pretty white women. Is this true? Do i need to be careful what i say and do? I am now worried after listening to him talk to my hubby about his jamaican vacation.

      What should we bring for cash?

      My hubby wants to bring his expensive canon camera, i want to buy a cheap compact camera. What would you all suggest?

    • Washing powder/detergent for hand washing in the checked in luggage?

      Jamaica Jan 24, 2015 at 7:27 AM

      How about bringing washing powder/detergent for hand washing in the checked in luggage? It does look rather suspicious with a bag of white powder...;)) should I JUST not take that chance bringing it? I'm in Jamaica for 3 weeks so washing will be needed...however I do not trust local laundry service from earlier experience.. (imagine;)

    • To Inclusive or not

      Jamaica Jan 20, 2015 at 8:22 PM

      Hello,

      My boyfriend and I will be travelling to Jamaica for the first time in May. We are torn between the all inclusives in Ochos Rios/Montego Bay versus regular hotels. I found a couple nice places on airbnb at the Palmyra Apartments in Montego Bay. Is anyone familiar with these? Any thoughts? It does seem a bit out of the way, so we’d need a taxi often. Any recommendations, thoughts, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

      Looking for NON All-Inclusives, this time

      Jamaica Jan 19, 2015 at 8:52 AM

      We are planning our 17th (I think) trip to our fave Caribbean island, Jamaica, for early summer. We have, since our honeymoon 32 years ago, gone AI. Our vacays to Jamaica with our son, now 26, were always perfect. We are, however, at the age where we don't drink as much, and don't eat as much, and the endless flow of food and liquor that we pay for pre-landing seems excessive. Can you recommend anyplace NOT All Inclusive that's on the beach? We like to stay near MoBay as that's where we land, and honestly don't like bussing it somewhere for an hour to start our vacation! Some guidance on small resorts (preferably without children) would be greatly appreciated.

      I forgot my iPad Mini in my hotel room. RIU Montego Bay asked me to get Fedex, and when I was told that it had to be initiated at their location, they then told me to use DHL. Same response...RIU Montego Bay needs to do this for me. Do you have any suggestion on how I can get my iPad Mini back? I live in Canada. Thanks so much for your suggestions!

    • where can I buy cigars in kingston, Jamaica?

      Kingston Oct 10, 2014 at 2:57 PM

      The only place I found so far was at the airport, but you could only buy if you were a passenger (had a boarding pass).

      I am not looking for Cuban cigars (if I did find autherntic ones, I wouldnt be against it).

      I know Jamaica has had a reputation for their tobacco.. I havent found any cigar stores after searching many forums/maps/directories yet.

      I am staying here for another 10 days and would love to smoke a few...
